Just six games into his rookie year, Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is already getting close to an NFL record.
Burrow already has four 300-yard passing games, which ties him for the fourth-most for a rookie in NFL history and puts him within striking distance of the all-time record.
The rookie record is six 300-yard passing games, set by Andrew Luck in 2012. Burrow only needs three 300-yard games over the rest of the season to break the record.
Burrow’s rookie season has been far from perfect. The Bengals are 1-4-1 and Burrow has been sacked 24 times. But Burrow is showing the capability to make plenty of plays with his arm, even if he and the Bengals still have a long way to go before they’re contenders.
